Pique: I hope Haaland comes to Barcelona

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique would welcome Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland to the Nou Camp.

The Blaugrana's finances are in a perilous position, but there is still optimism that they could lure a big-name player to the Camp Nou this summer.

"I have no idea, I hope that he comes [to Barcelona]," Pique said during a chat with YouTuber Ibai Llanos.

"The great players should be with us, but that's a decision for the club to make. They will know."

The 33-year-old Sergio Aguero has joined Barcelona on a free and Pique has admitted that they have a pre-existing relationship.

"I already got on well with him. For years, we've always been connected on social media," he commented.

"I played the U20 World Cup against him, because we are from the same generation. Leo [Messi] speaks very well of him."
